Ok, I would have expected a search on this to yield all kinds of results but I'm not finding much. Does c++ support using an animated GIF as a resource type or will I have to code timers and what not to create a flashing button out of two graphics? I'm using this:
to create my graphical buttons. I've modified that code to support additional requirements I have (repeat while mouse down, a disabled state BITMAP to name a few) but I'd like to be able to have an "active state" whereby the image is flashing (like an LED) while an operation is being performed. An animated GIF would be perfect, but I'm guessing that would be too easy :)
What's the most appropriate approach?
